Guest Lecture By Grandmaster Igor Smirnov
1. e4 b6 – Owens Opening
In this video, we’ll analyze a very interesting and greatly underestimated opening for Black: 1.e4 b6 Here Black uses a hypermodern concept: let your opponent place his pawns in the center, and make them targets for your attack afterwards!
This opening is jam-packed with a lot of tricks and active possibilities for Black. Plus, this will surprise your opponent and drag him into unknown territory. Without a shred of doubt, 1…b6 is a menacing weapon (especially against amateur players and in quick games).
And as if that’s not enough, you can apply the same opening for White (by playing 1.b3). If playing 1…b6 is more than playable, certainly, it won’t hurt if you have an extra tempo as White! You can hit 2 spots with only 1 video. Check it out NOW!Make sure to comment below and make sure to Thank Grandmaster Smirnov for the free 40 minute lecture.
